Mini QVX

miniQV® -X is a fully automated, singlebath, benchtop viscometer for rapid kinematic viscosity measurement of transparent and opaque liquids with ASTM D445 precision capability. A 25 position sample handler allows unattended processing. The fastrun tube covers a 10-fold viscosity range at values between 5 mm2 /s (cSt) and 800 mm2 /s (cSt) at 40 °C and 100 °C. The miniQV-X has been optimized for condition monitoring of used oils.




  • Temperature range: ambient to 100 °C (± 0.01 °C)
  • Viscosity range: • 5 mm2 /s (cSt) to 800 mm2 /s (cSt) in 10-fold increments at 40 °C • 5 mm2 /s (cSt) to 50 mm2 /s (cSt) in 10- fold increments at 100 °C
  • Fits in roughly the same bench-top area as an analytical balance
  • Analysis time: typically 3 minutes or less per test
  • Follows most ASTM D445 principles but with shorter flow times to accommodate rapid analysis
  • Single-point temperature calibration avoids tube recalibration costs and maximizes test flexibility
  • Standard dual solvent input
